PODCAST: Alice Linahan Show – Guest:  Dr. James Milgram with questions from Karen Bracken, Anita Stapleton, Alice Linahan, and call-ins such as Randy

 

Dr. James Milgram and Dr. Sandra Stotsky were asked to be on the Validation Committee for the Common Core Standards. They were tasked to verify the research upon which the Common Core Standards were built.  When no valid research was ever given to them (such as international benchmarking of the standards and piloted studies where the CCS had been shown to increase academic achievement), they both refused to sign off on the CCS.

 

In this podcast, Dr. Milgram explains his grave concerns with the philosophy behind the CCS, the differences between process standards vs. content standards, and what parents can do to protect their children.
